Dementia and Digital

This report explores how basic digital skills and community-based support can improve the health and wellbeing of families affected by dementia.

At Good Things Foundation, we believe everyone should be able to benefit from digital – especially people who are most isolated and most excluded. That includes many of the 850,000 or so people in the UK with Dementia – and their carers.

This focussed, short-term piece of research was carried out to track the social and digital barriers facing people with dementia and their carers, understand how the UK online centres network is already helping to overcome these barriers, and discover what more can be done at a local and national level.
